If you have split up from a long-term relationship, friends and family will often ask if you want to get back together with your Ex. Whatever happened with your last partner, whether it was a rollercoaster ride from hell or a happy relationship, you may not want to give away too many details.
People don’t need to know that you were tired of your boyfriend farting in his sleep or the other inane details of why the relationship broke down. When you share your intimate relationship details with a nosy Aunt Nelly or the office gossip, there is a pretty good chance people will be having a laugh and discussing your private life.
There is a famous Les Brown quote:
Don’t tell anyone you’re problems. Eighty percent of the people don’t care and twenty percent of the people are glad that you have them.

Neva was tired of being asked if she would take her ex back
Neva had reached her limit. It seemed like every conversation with her friends and family inevitably circled back to the same question: “Are you going to take your ex back?” It didn’t matter how many times she explained her reasons for the breakup or how much she emphasized that she was moving on with her life. The persistent inquiries were becoming exhausting.
One day, during yet another round of questioning, Neva decided it was time to put her foot down. She gathered her closest friends and candidly expressed her frustration.
Neva explained that while she appreciated their concern, the constant interrogation about her ex was taking a toll on her well-being. She made it clear that she needed their support in moving forward, not dwelling on the past.
To her relief, her friends listened attentively and apologized for their persistent inquiries. They assured Neva that they were there for her, no matter what, and pledged to focus on creating new, positive experiences together. From that day on, the topic of her ex became a thing of the past, and Neva felt a renewed sense of freedom and empowerment in shaping her own future.
